Here's an entertaining little film with one small point to make (maybe one and a half). But it does it in a pleasant way, evoking a nostalgic image of '60s hippies trying to make music, have fun and find a new way in the world. The acting is competent, directing likewise, script is middling but everyone does a good job with it. It's too bad the actors who could portray the '60s attitude are too old for the parts - there's a lot of stereotyping and far-out mugging in attempting to convey the mood of the time. It just doesn't work very well, in my opinion.

I had to go to a bit of trouble to find this on DVD, but finally managed to get it from Germany. If you have a collection of music films from or about the 1960s, this one should definitely be in your collection. If you stumble across a copy, by all means get it. If you're just casually interested, I am not sure a great effort will seem worthwhile, however.

The soundtrack is, of course, completely groovy!
